TheOrbTwo's Name Space

in reply to Name Space

Well, I've been The Orb for ages. I wanted to reinvent myself, since the myself I had been using started becomming a looser wasting all of his time downloading things over a 2400 baud modem from local BBSes.

I wanted a name that signified some sort of mysterious power. Hell, I couldn't have been more then 12. So thus, The Orb it was. Since I'm lazy, it was theorb. But then, I lost the password of The Orb on somethingoranother. I think it might have been Yahoo!, and I needed an email account, and refused to use hotmail. Anyway, thus, I became theorbtwo. Since, I've found a number of places where theorb is a haX0R d00d. (BTW, I have a theorb2 account on the NYT web site, and I think I got that during HS, so that puts the two in theorbtwo sometime after '96.)

    Funny how names carry associations. Having read this I shall now not see theorbtwo without thinking of Palantirs (yes, I can't really claim to be a geek but I do like the Lord of the Rings). But in the past whenever I've seen Theorbtwo in the CB or wherever, I've always thought of a theorbo, which is an early stringed instrument like a large lute. Now, this tells you more about me than about The Orb... but it might add a new layer of significance to an already multi-layered name. So here's some information about theorboes.

      My guess seeing the name, and especially seeing it spelled out as The Orb, was a possible reference to the Orb that circles the head of the Emperor of Dragaera.

        Mmmmm...     Brust!

    I thought it was from Theo Rob Two.

      No, no. It is clearly short for THEOlogical RoBoT World Order (which is headed by Theodore Robert Wo).

[Tanktalus]: Tux: use sort -V to sort your perls. Looks much nicer that way ;)
[Tux]: Hmmm, pm-cb-g does not seem to accept dead-key diacriticals as all my other (perl) applications do. choroba?
[Tux]: Tanktalus this was the output of autocompletion in my tcsh
[erix]: ah, but I have different compilation- versions of Pg too, so double that: 26 * 2 = more than 50 :P
[Tanktalus]: When I showed one of my coworkers my perl list, he told me that my sort routine was broken when 5.8.8 showed up after 5.26.0 ... which made me investigate sort, which is when I found this option :)
erix atm running billion row table replication (pg-)tests...
[Tanktalus]: Tux: ah, still... :)
Tux writes mail to tcsh developers ...
Tanktalus snickers :)
[stonecolddevin]: good morning everyone
